The star filmed himself explaining his afternoon activity and then panned onto his makeshift allotment patch on the road.

Will said: ‘Hello! Today… more road planting, which I encourage anyone to do – responsibility! 

‘Irises going with the crab apple tree I planted last summer, it’s done well. Perhaps it was two summers ago?’ 

Encouraging his fans to also spread some cheer for their fellow neighbours, he added: ‘Just get out there, plant them, the whole street will enjoy them in spring… if we ever get there!’

While a different account added: ‘Spreading a bit of sunshine fabulous idea darling.’ 

Will also took to Instagram to complain about a pair of socks he recently purchased, sharing a picture of them, he said that they had got a hole in them after just one Pilates session.

He wrote: ‘Just in case (!) do not purchase these socks they get holes in after one Pilates session ! Also customer service dreadful.’ 

Will has had a tough few weeks, following the tragic death of his twin brother Rupert who died in August after years of battling mental health issues.

Rupert, 41, previously spoke about his struggles with alcohol and depression, while also admitting his sibling’s Pop Idol win in 2002 had impacted their relationship.

He was diagnosed with dysthymia – a depressive mood disorder – in 2005.

His family, including brother Will who was born 10 minutes before Rupert, were said to have been left wracked by grief.

A friend said: ‘Will’s relationship with Rupert had been tough over the years at times, and they had both spoken about the mental health problems which had made it challenging.

‘But there were hopes he had turned a corner and they are a very loving family – and utterly devastated by his passing.’

Will previously revealed how he had been temporarily separated from his twin brother at birth, when Rupert was placed in an incubator due to illness, something which had caused the singer long-term psychological damage.

He later received six months of treatment for PTSD, triggered by their separation, his years of keeping his homosexuality a secret and being bullied at school.

Will shot to fame almost two decades ago when he was crowned the victor over runner-up Gareth Gates during the inaugural season of Pop Idol.
